Well, I don't know if this is too much to ask but i'll try anyways. Now that we've already heard the song live, wouldn't it be great if they posted the lyrics for us?

It's so hard to try and guess, so it would be a great help and would keep us a little bit busy discussing about it while we count the days for the release.

Come on guys, please?

=D

Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against one
Is it all that hard to teach?

Learn a couple words
Assaulting unsuspecting heard
And as you step back in the line
Who ______

Now dance fucker dance
You never had a chance
They never really knew
It was really only you

Now you see the way
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far kid

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
You can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Show me how to lie
I'm drifting closer in your sight
So play it out I'm wide awake
It's a shame ___ me

There's someone in your way
And that's the one who's gonna pay
If you can't get what you want
Well it's all because of me


Now dance fucker dance
I never had a chance
No one really knew
It was really only you

Now you lead the way
Show a lie today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far kid

Trust and see
With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
You can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Dance fucker dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

Dance fucker dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
You can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

__________How time flies
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
You can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Ah, I just listened to the one from San diego, I'm not sure if it's lie or not, but I can now say I was incorrect in assuming that it is certainly life.

where can i find it? i searched, but couldn´t find a thread about the san diego gig. which songs did they play?

EDIT: sorry, i thought the san diego gig was yesterday. is there any media from the SANTA BARBARA gig?

That would be sweet.


Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against one
isn't all that hard to teach

This is what soxic figured out from the actual album version, which I trust more than figuring it out from a live version. It seems more correct.



Another clever word
Assaulting unsuspecting heard
And as you step back in the line
Who ______

Which he once again figured out from the actual album version



Slowly out of line
I'm drifting closer in your sight
So play it out I'm wide awake
It's a shame ___ me

Which he figured out once again from the album version. It does sound a bit different from the "show me how to lie" from the beginning of the song.

NO!

You are all wrong. The first line is obviously "Show me howdy lion, he's getting better all the time."

It's about a guy who wants to see a lion named "howdy".

Don't tell me it isn't 'cause it's like so clear.







Seriously camilamazed is right, this guessing is pointless

Yes but not leaked yet, he had a promo. And that guy posted most of the lyrics for "you're gonna go far, kid" on May the first. Lyrics I saved on my pc before the topics were deleted at his request. And I doubt he has a time travel Delorean.

first sentence sounds like "him", the second as "her" which would explain the plural "them" better I guess

Show me how to lie, it's getting better all the time

Now dance fucker, dance
Man you never had the chance
And no one only you,
It was nearly(really) only you

With the ... in eyes
In the country side
In the right between the eyes

Now dance fucker, dance
Man I never had the chance
And no one only you,
It was nearly only you

Camilamazed

"Now dance fucker, dance

Show me how to lie,
You're getting better all the time
Turning all against one, isn't all they taught to teach
And all those clever words
It's often unsuspecting heard (?)
And as you step back in the line
___ to their feet

Now dance fucker, dance
Man you never had the chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now he's in the way
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies,
and a good disguise
Hidden right between the eyes
Hidden right between the eyes
And you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes,
See them running for their lives

Show me how to lie, I'm just a ___ in your sight
So playing ___ wide awake, _________
There's something in your way,
And so what, he's gonna pay
And if he can't get what you want,
Well it's all because of me

Now dance fucker, dance
Man I never had the chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you lead the way
Show a lie today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid
Trust and see

With a thousand lies,
and a good disguise
Hidden right between the eyes
Hidden right between the eyes
And you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes,
See them running for their lives

From the preview I hear something like:

(I am not sure about the first one, but I am pretty sure it's "line", not "lie")
I'm (or "and") drifting closer in your sight
So playing (or "play it") out and wide awake
It's a sin about me

There's something in your way
And now someone is gonna pay
And if you can't get what you want
Well it's all because of me

EDIT: Sometimes I even hear the first line as "shortly down the line", but that's probably only my subconscious.

Lyrics:

Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against one
Is it all that hard to teach?

Learn a couple words
Assaulting unsuspecting heard
And as you step back in the line
Who mounted to their feet

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man he never had the chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now he's in the way
Take him out today
That is what you did
You're gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
In the right between the eyes
In the right between the eyes
We can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Show me how to lie
I'm drifting closer in your sight
So play it out, I'm wide awake
It’s a scene, then battle me

There's something in your way
And that's the one who's gonna pay
If you can't get what you want
Well it's all because of me

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man I never had the chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you lead the way
Show the light of day
That is what you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

Trust and see!

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
In the right between the eyes
In the right between the eyes
We can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Dance, fucker, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

So dance, fucker, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
In the right between the eyes
In the right between the eyes
We can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Running fast
No, not that fast
In the right between the eyes
In the right between the eyes
We can walk away with nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See them running, for their lives

Thank you all for your contributions to the lyrics.

At the end I think he sais.

"Their allibi's lord of the flies..."

That's just what I hear.I don't know how that makes sense.(I guess if those are the actual lyrics you'd have to know the meaning of the song)

It also seems like those are the lyrics because Flies rhymes with Eyes.

Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against one isn't all that hard to teach

Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line a mob jumps to their feet

Now dance fucker, dance
Man, he never had a change
And no one even knew it was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Strolling out of line and drifting closer in your sight
So play it out, I'm wide awake
It's the same about me

There's something in your way and now someone is gonna pay
And if you can't get what you want
Well it's all because of me

Now dance fucker, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew it was really only you

And now you lead the way
Shown a lighter day
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

Trust and see

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Now dance fucker, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew it was really only you

So dance fucker, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit him right between the eyes
Hit him right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Clever alibis, Lord of the Flies
Him him right between the eyes
Him him right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives
